Studying in Cornwall

Cornwall is a unique part of the UK. From its rugged coastlines and surfing beaches to the thriving capital city of Truro, there’s always something happening. We have three campuses in the county. Truro campus features state-of-the-art facilities, from music studios and science labs to its indoor sports hall and swimming pool. Our Tregye Campus is set in 13 acres of Cornish countryside, close to Loe Beach where you can try your hand at kayaking, windsurfing and paddle-boarding. Following a £30 million redevelopment, our Penwith campus in Penzance features all the facilities you’d expect from a leading modern university, plus spectacular views of Mounts Bay on the coast. With us, you have the chance to study with an outstanding college in an inspirational setting.
